    I have seen recievers that offer Y/C or S-VHS inputs but was wondering if there are any with component inputs?:blush:

    Yes. Many of Denon's recievers has it, and many of the other brands are also offering component switching on their new recievers.
    Mine has it three in, one out.

    Most new amps do, Denon, Yamaha, Onkyo etc. BTW: It's called S-Video, not S-VHS. :)

    Thansk for the INFO but many years ago when S-VHS was introduced this type of input was only available on S-VHS VTRs and monitors. Hence it was called "the S-VHS input". as it became more widespread on all types of equipment, it became known as S Video. Strictly speaking both are incorrect. It is the Y/C input (Y is luminance C is chrominance).

    Now don't get me started on component.

    I remember it labelled as S-VHS on my first "Super VHS" video recorder – a Grundig machine that Bob Tomalski called the "Incredible Hulk" in his What Video review in about '89/'90.

    Yep, even today some Nokia SAT Receivers are labelled with S-VHS. But then, what do they know about AV!? ;)

    1. RIP Bob Tomalski

    2. Well said, chienmort.

    3. Shirley there's nowt wrong with calling it an SVHS socket/input/plug/whatever, so long as we all know what it means <usual logic for this sort of 'debate'>.
